Wooden Embroidery Hoops - Square
"You are only as good as the tools you use" After decades in and adjacent to the crafting industry I whole heartedly believe this. Whether it is using a subpar sewing machine and trying to get a solid straight stitch or a dull needle to make a fine stitch, nothing is more frustrating to an artist than using poor quality equipment.
That is why I searched extensively for embroidery hoops that were good quality and would make stitching enjoyable for any skill level. They may be pricier than your typical craft store sale version but these are the "Cadillacs of Hoops". Trust me, as soon as you feel it in your hand - you won't ever want to put it down.
We have stocked a variety of sizes enabling you to perform a wide range of hand embroidery techniques. All of the hoops are made of beechwood and feature brass fittings.
“Square hoops” with rounded corners are popular with counted thread embroiderers. The size opening is better suited for sampler work than a round shaped hoop. The width is 5/16 inch.
The fine, 5/16 inch width slender hoops are for light weight fabrics such as batiste and cambric. These are best for embroidering monograms, raised embroidery slips, or any kind of fancywork.
To protect your embroidery fabric from marking, please wrap the hoop with twill or bias tape. We have twill tape available in 4 yard packages.
